the students benefit from-- blark white, latino, asian. everybody benefits from these cross-racial interactions. and too many of our high schools are racially identified. there's lot of residential segregation leading to segregation in school, not by law but by practice. the result is too many kids n't have these interactionsesses until they get to college and are able to learn from each other and break down stereotypes. the ramification of this case could be far reaching depending on how the court rules. >> richard kahlenberg, far-reaching? >> absolutely. this goes to what we mean by equal opportunity in our society. should race count in deciding who gets ahead? how do we create racial diversity in our universities? i agree with debo that it's very important that our leading institutions of higher education ve students o all dfere racial and ethnic groups. my concern with the current affirmative action is that essentially, universities assemble wealthy kids of all colors, and we're not getting that genuine diversity that has to do also with socioeconomic status. >> suarez: debo, you mentioned

, on september 17th, same deal again. here's mitt romney at a latino issues presidential candidates forum, saying that the guy who wrote the arizona's papers, please, law, he's never met the guy. no idea. he doesn't know why he keeps say that guy is his immigrations adviser. seriously, mitt romney has never met kris kobach? no, not really. his campaign later coming out and telling cnn, never mind what mitt romney just said, he has met the guy who wrote the papers, please, law, kris kobach does advise the campaign. then a few days after that on september 25th, they went and did it again. here's mitt romney conceding one of his most frequent attacks on president obama. this was mitt romney at a rally that day admitting that president obama has not raised taxes while he has been in office. seriously? mitt romney is dropping that argument? he doesn't think president obama has raised taxes? no, not really. his campaign later saying, never mind what mitt romney just said. that's not actually what he believes. sure, he said president obama didn't raise taxes, and president obama didn't raise taxes, but
of numbers that it's altering that chemistry. latinos and african-american voters are staying in more than we've seen, and i think that's sort of counterbalancing the others. we're not seeing a big difference in all these states between registered and likely, especially not in ohio. that's a special case with 18% having already voted. as you said, 63% for obama. huge difference in the campaign affecting the chemistry of ohio. >> and very quickly, i want to do one other number that i want to bring up. who's better able to handle the economy post-debate? we saw some shifting -- not a lot, but some shifting in mitt romney's favor. he's ahead on the economy in florida, ahead on the economy in virginia, but behind in ohio. it sort of tells me, that sort of explains the leads. maybe it's better, as good as any number that you have out there. >> sure. this is such an important question in terms of not only the right direction, which has gotten a little tighter in terms of people thinking things are heading a little better than they were, but in terms of the economy, romney in the driver's seat in th
. our state is very diverse. i am independent, as you mentioned, our state consists of latinos, native, caucasians, moms, and myself was african- american. we have noticed certain lines have been drawn our state. i mean this with the utmost respect. certain people campaign in certain communities. if we are going to be for 100% of america, shouldn't the candidates go to all the people? as an african-american, it bothers me that some people take for granted that myself and my wife who is african-american, will automatically vote for barack obama. i would like to hear the other side of the argument in my community. some of my community members, we've rarely see elected officials or people running for office. guest: he is exactly right, we need to be campaigning across the country. republican candidates are doing that across the country. we feel good about where our targets are. if you look at the targets, there is no doubt the republican party prior to the 2006-2008 shrank back to a smaller version of itself. in the last cycle, we showed we can win seats across the country from the northe
